Welcome to The First Presbyterian Church in Springfield!
 
We are a welcoming congregation that seeks to cultivate disciples of Jesus Christ in a community of learning, healing and sharing.  Located in the heart of Flourtown, we are rich in history and we are boldly forging our future for which we know God is preparing us.  Our congregation believes in the importance of family; commitment to our neighborhood and world through mission; and nurturing  spiritual values through our ministries of worship, education, and fellowship.

MISSION OPPORTUNITIES:


Philabundance: 3rd Saturday of every month 12p.m.-4p.m. Once a month we travel to Philabundance in South Philly (3 blocks from Citizens Bank Park) to help pack Senior boxes, which are delivered to seniors who are unable to get out to shop.  The work is not difficult and the fellowship is fun!  Meet in the church parking lot for carpooling. 

Thanksgiving Baskets:  Food sorting and basket distribution is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 21 at Germantown Ave. Crisis Ministry.  If you would like to help, please call the church office.  If you can donate a turkey, label it and leave it in the church freezer by Thurs. Nov. 20.  Thanksgiving non-perishables for the baskets can also be dropped off at the church Sharing Cupboard.

Don't forget the Sharing Cupboard!  Canned and packaged food items are desperately needed each week.  Your contributions are much appreciated and always delivered to Germantown Ave. Crisis Ministry on Tuesdays.  The community is welcome to drop off food donations on Sunday mornings between 9-12, and most Monday-Thursday evenings from 7:30-8:30.
